Timezone display and UTC offset incorrect

Timezone displayed top-left of screen is incorrect. Shows “EDT” while I am in “EST” (Daylight Saving Time is not currently in force).

Also, when I hover over the time, it shows this:

US East: UTC -04:00
US West: UTC -07:00
EU Central: UTC +01:00
South America: UTC -03:00

The two US time offsets would be accurate if the US were currently on DST, but it’s not, so they’re both off by one hour. It should display:

US East: UTC -05:00
US West: UTC -08:00
EU Central: UTC +01:00
South America: UTC -03:00

Ironically, for my location in US East, even though the timezone is labeled incorrectly, and the offset is listed incorrectly, the actual time that is shown is accurate. For example, as of this writing, it’s currently 10:09 EST, and the displayed time is 10:09 EDT. So the time is accurate; only the timezone is incorrect.
